"Tempe" Is the Unfortunate Name Chosen for Drug That Combats Premature Ejaculation
In the future, you may have to clarify what you're talking about when you say "Tempe."
Are you talking about the Arizona city that's home to Arizona State University, or are you talking about the penis-spray that was developed to combat premature ejaculation?
Yes, "Tempe" seems to be an unfortunate choice for the name of a product that's billed as the "new Viagra," as far as sex wonder-drugs go, as explained in a recent article by the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

Turns out, the name's been around for a while -- we tracked down an article in a medical journal about Tempe (the penis-spray) from 2006.
According to the Daily Mail, the penis spray "has been judged safe and effective by the European Medicines Agency and is expected in bedroom cabinets early next year."
The product's website, which has the totally discrete URL of EjaculationSpray.com, says they're trying to get the product approved in the United States, too. Who knows when it might come. That's what she said.
